Council chiefs want to hear from farmers interested in leasing agricultural land on the outskirts of town.

The land at Hart Smallholdings next to Hart Village is available on a six-year lease agreement after the previous lease came to an end.

The Grade 2/3 agricultural land is split into two separate lots consisting 112 acres of arable land and 29 acres of pasture land.

The land is being marketed via tender on a six-year lease and council chiefs are anticipating a high level of interest.

Councillor Christopher Akers-Belcher, chair of the council’s Finance and Policy Committee, said: “This is excellent farming land in a good location with easy access to the A19.”

Tenders close at noon on Wednesday, March 1. For further information contact 01429 523228 or email: estates@hartlepool.gov.uk
